Okay, so I wanted to make a thread about certain things I have observed over the years in relation to ESP and my perspective on them. The goal here is
to, if not convince you of the existence of ESP (Extra-Sensory Perception), then give you ideas how you can put it to the test yourself. Okay so
let's get at it.
Before I got into full on meditations, i used to just get some breakfast every morning in a food court and just rest my head and close my eyes. I
would count my breaths and focus on a thought / concept /single image and let the distracting background noise of the mind fade away. I didn't really
do any chakra work as this was still new to me, but you know, I only really had 15 minutes to eat.. and just clearing my mind like this got me into a
nice light trance.
So anyways..as I did this, I was in a state as to be more aware of my environment with all the clutter of the mind gone. I would watch lots of people
walk by in the food court and I noticed some interesting things:
1. PERCEIVING PERSONALITY
I would sort of blur my eyes and look at them peripherally. I would ignore the visual details of them and just sort of become aware of how they move.
When I did this I got this impression of their type of personality. I blurred my eyes in such a way that it was like I was looking at their conceptual
or inner form beneath the surface. At the time I felt like I was just guessing but I just took it like a game and went with it, trying to guess what
people were like based on their "flow".
2. AURA / ENERGY FIELD
By looking at the people peripherally like this I would notice what looked like an after-image where they moved. If you can notice this and say you
have white walls around where your computer is or where you're sitting reading this, try just waving your hand around, looking at it peripherally and
seeing this sort of trail.
By looking at them like this I would also notice how I sort of perceived this subtle field around them. Sometimes I could see a colour, other times I
just get this impression in my mind that if there was a colour there, that it was a specific one or mix. Just try it as an experiment and see what you
get. You might be surprised and wonder why you associate this colour with this person.
3. THE "EYE SNAP" AND MORE ABOUT THE MAGIC EYES
This one is my favourite. I love to test who is the most aware/receptive. I find often now I can sense them in a crowd and I know they will be the one
to respond to this little test. You can do this just walking by, or I even like to sit down and let people walk by as I do this.
Find a person in the crowd walking by.. then LOOK AT THEIR EYES. Sometimes you'll notice they'll look at you.. and this is the interesting part,
because it's not like they just panned their head or their eyes and happened to see you, no, the eyes SNAP right to your eyes. It's eye to eye,
just like magnets. So I thought... i'm sitting in a crowd of people, i'm not really standing out.. and they are walking in a crowd of people, I
look in their eyes, and their eyes snap to mine...did they know I was looking at them and they sensed it on a level they are perhaps not aware of?
Well since then I have experimented with it more.. I often catch my own vision snapping to lock directly into the eyes of someone else. Sometimes I
notice I get the urge to turn right around and notice I just snap eyes to someone looking at me. This is very interesting to me. I find it interesting
that when I observe people, I just feel inclined to look in their eyes as well.
I find that when the eyes lock it can be very powerful. It can feel like a surge. I feel like I can tell by the feel if it's a vibe of attraction,
fascination or hostility. Kind of funny too because when I feel there is perceived mutual attraction I also notice other things, kind of like a
sense/tingling under my lower lip. This one time I saw a girl I thought was a friend of mine that I had not seen in a while and it was like my heart
went into overdrive. She was just minding her business and her eyes snapped to mine, like she could feel this powerful energy I was sending her, I
knew it. We continued fixed on each others eyes with this look of intensity until we walked by each other. That occurrence really stands out to me
because she was just looking the other way and then it looked she was knocked back by what what I was sending her, and her eyes instantly met mine.
But yeah, this can be a fun one to experiment with. After a while you get a feel for who is receptive. The other day I saw this cashier girl with her
head down like 20 feet away from me as I was walking by. I looked at her and then looked away but I saw peripherally that she looked up at me. I was
just having fun trying to see if I could get her attention and I did.
The eyes have a powerful magnetism about them. It's interesting how eyes can intimidate people. I still have a hard time looking in some people's
eyes. I often look around while talking to them. Perhaps I just don't like the feel of what they're putting off. It's different for every person
though. At either rate, when I lock eyes with someone its like a beam goes between me and them and if it's not harmonic I subconsciously feel the
urge to look away, and if its pleasant I can fix my gaze on their eyes.
I think it's an interesting topic because the more I become aware of these seemingly "extra"-sensory things, and the more I observe people, the
more it seems like they also have these senses but just aren't aware of it. Me and my room-mate were discussing how sometimes it's impossible to
hear what someone is saying in a loud bar/club.. yet people still find a way to communicate, through their eyes, body language and subtle signals.
Someone's state or intention I feel can be seen clearly in the eyes and also felt, and I think: "Do other people also FEEL it but don't notice
Well, there's some eye games for you to try out.
4. PERCEIVING THOUGHTS, FEELINGS
I find this used to cause me a lot of problems until I shifted my perspective and dug into it deeper. Many times when I thought I was feeling a
certain way, I think I was just picking up something from someone else. First of all I want to say this:
Has anyone every been told "you're in my personal space!" ?
There seems to be a comfort zone for people that extends about an arm's reach away. Is there more going on here then they realize?
I used to think I felt a lot of nervous tension in crowds but as I worked out those problems I soon realized there could perhaps be other factors at
work. I could be meditating on the train and being perfectly calm.. I'd walk off the train and start walking down a crowded stairwell. I give myself
a check to re-assure myself that I feel comfortable and open, but I wonder why I'm feeling what seems like.. hard to describe really... I feel
tension of the people around me. It's like they suddenly close off their energy and pull in their aura. They go into their shells so to speak and I
feel I can sense their agitation.
When someone is in my "personal space".. or aura I can feel like an uncomfortable tension usually in my upper or lower stomach.
-wise, this would be consistent for what seems like a person who is low on energy, nervous or is
depressed / has emotional problems. As I learn to become aware of my own chakras and fix them, I've also tried to fix the chakras of others if I
feel I can sense them. Usually I do it because they are sitting next to me and I want the uncomfortable feeling to go away, but i also enjoy the idea
of it possibly helping them. I would do my thing to balance that chakra I feel I am sensing a block from and after some time I find its accompanied
but what feels like a nice, warm wave that flows over me. I feel I can sense that THEY sense their mood has changed. But I've also had help with this
recently and so it doesn't cause me any problems.
So i say to you.. perhaps you've felt a little un-easy around people before but what I'm saying is to become aware of your state..and if you realize
you feel comfortable, then that there could be something (or someone) else you're sensing.
I find as my awareness develops, these things can be like a double-edged sword. My advice is to learn to deal with them the best you can, throw up a
mental/energy shield or something as not be so affected by those who would like/need your energy.
